Much better, Thanks for the review, Matthew!
If there is no objection, I will send two patches to Andrew.
One is PageReadahead strict, the other is limit retry from mm_populate.

Subject: [PATCH] mm: make PageReadahead more strict

PG_readahead flag is shared with PG_reclaim but PG_reclaim is only
used in write context while PG_readahead is used for read context.

To make it clear, let's introduce PageReadahead wrapper with
!PageWriteback check so it could make code clear and we could drop
PageWriteback check in page_cache_async_readahead, which removes
pointless dropping mmap_sem.
